Zebra with Tartan in One Outfit

Zebra is an underrated animal print. This means that you can stand out of the crowd with this fur pattern on your clothing. Currently, wearing a sophisticated look in animal prints is a big thing; and the good news is this trend works very well for us women in midlife! Thus, you shouldn’t miss out! In today’s post, I show you how to create an outfit that mixes zebra print and tartan pattern.

Don’t let the right outfit be a random thing. Wear the right look in every situation by looking up what to wear when in How to Dress for Success in Midlife. Buy the book now.

How to Get the Mixed Look to Work

It works because of the  pieces use the same color scheme – black and white. Plus the pattern and print are of different scale. Thus, they do not compete with each other for attention.

It is important to ground the outfit with a color that is common to all pieces in the mix. In this example, the black shoes ground the look. Black is a great color to ground a mixed print/pattern outfit. In winter, black tights and/or black tall boots are ageless style options that do the trick.

What Other Print Mixes to Try

Other ideas to try when mixing prints and patterns are using the same theme like tartan with tartan of a different size, large and small floral prints, pin dots and polka dots, or stripes and dots.

Will you jump the bandwagon on the animal print? Will you try zebra? Just curious.
